Top 5 Tips to a Successful Office Holiday Party

By Kelly Indrieri

The countdown to the holiday season has begun and that can mean only one thing, the office holiday party. Okay, maybe it means more than one thing, but for those of you who anticipate your company party as much as we do here at Kulesa Faul, I've compiled a list of the Top 5 Tips to a Successful Office Holiday Party. I’m hoping this can serve as a public service.

Number 5. Avoid red lipstick (I offer this one based on experience)

Number 4. Be careful of overzealous dancing (people will talk about it the next day, I promise)

Number 3. Don’t drink and drive (hail a cab, call a friend, just stay safe)

Number 2. Avoid using this event as an opportunity to tell a colleague how you really feel (a party should be about love people, remember that)

And the Number 1 Tip to a Successful Office Holiday Party: Remembering that what happens at the office party DOESN’T stay at the office party (so keep it clean folks)

So take the evening to celebrate your colleagues, clients and the year’s success. Just try not to be the butt of the joke the next day. Believe me, you’ll thank me for it.
